Category:Edward Mooney House

The Edward Mooney House at 18 Bowery on the corner of Pell Street in the Bowery neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City was built between 1785 and 1789 in the Georgian or Early Federal style, and is the oldest surviving town house in that style in the city. Mooney was a merchant who purchased the property from the forfeiture of James Delancey, who was a Loyalist during the American Revolution, and had his assets seized afterwards. Mooney lived in the house until his death c.1800, and by the 1840s the residential neighborhood had changed significantly and the house was a brothel. The house was designed a NYC landmark in 1966.
